Yes sir. Great news.
Awesome! I've only had their Ten Fidy and it was an amazing brew. Can't wait to try some of their other stuff.
I'm not overly impressed by their offerings, I imagine they'll struggle in a great beer state like Michigan, where even small town breweries are pumping out world class beers! But then again, variety, spice, etc.
I would say I'm less impressed with New Belgium's year round line up, and it seems like they are doing quite fine...Mama's Lil Yellow Pils will be a welcomed site, Michigan is devoid of good, American lager options.
i'll drink my fair share of Deviant Dale's and Ten Fidy
New Belgium does really well in Indiana too, and I think most of their year rounds are average at best, but I honestly think most of that has to do with all of the promotion they do: tons of signs/neon, events, the famous displays they do featuring a giveaway bike, everything you can imagine branded with New Belgium or Fat Tire (including the kick ass NB globe), plus theyve gotten a lot of press for being employee owned and extremely green. Maybe I've underestimated Oskar Blues PR, but based solely on their regular offerings, I can't imagine them making much of an impact. I'm wrong a lot too.
This is great news!
Wow cool...thy Michigan beer cup is overflowing at the moment...DH BBPlead and BBMonster then Kuhnhenn BB4D and BBBW then Hosplam and BlackNote(in fact, Im drinkin one right now) then Lagunitas Sucks then Oskar Bluz comin our way...great brewery IMO...always drinkin Gubna, Ten Fidy, G'Night, and LYP everytime Im out west...
I cant freakin wait!!!
Michigan is pretty ridiculous. I like being able to go home to my parents' house in Michigan occasionally and go on a bottle spree.
I love my rediculous joke state of Michigan. Solid score!!!
Hopefully MN is on the list also.
Another thing about this that makes me happy is we get a good canned beer option. One thing in Michigan we don't have is a really good canned craft selection. Plus I do love me some deviant dales.
If you make it to Ann Arbor, hit Wolverine State Brewing, the bottled beers are not that remarkable, the other lagers in the tap room are.
Waiting for Bells to make Quinnanan Falls a production beer. Loved that one.
Already contacted Liz to see if they planned on sending some kegs up my way, unfortunately they are not. But thanks for the info, maybe you can sneak one up with you when you come...?
If I remember, I will get a growler of GuloGulo IPL.
So excited. Been wanting a quality canned beer to be available in Michigan for some time now.
HOLY SHITBALLS! I did not know about this. Total beer boner.
Outfrickinstanding!! The more the merrier when it comes to great beer. (Never had a drop of their offering, but I've desired it for a long time). Now Bring on the surly, new glarius and three Floyd's.
^ Three Floyds is a must. Haven't had Zombie Dust, but I dream about it.
This is the best news I've heard in a while. I love me some Ten FIDY. Now if only Three Floyds would deliver ONE MORE STATE OVER.
Drink Michigan beer!! With that said it will be good to have some caned alternatives
Stooooooooooooked. Almost time to stock up on old chub it seems.
I usually do but a ted fidy every now and then wont kill anyone. and the fact that its in cans...even better
thats the whole reason why i'm excited. CANS!
Ten Fidy will be the best camping stout ever. Nothing better than crushing beers out of a can up north.
and 12 ouncers at that. They will actually fit in a cooler lol.
Not much of a fan of Brewery Vivant? I think they make some pretty stellar stuff.
Yes, and I also enjoy Keewenaw products
Keweenaw, but we forgive you.
Canned Two-Hearted coming soon FYI.
Probably not till Fall though. I need those cans for canoeing!
Someone tell Larry we need a 30-pack format available May - September
Any new information to support the fall canning timeline?
I have been hearing Oberon would be the first, Two Hearted would follow at a later date.
Eesh. 2014? That's sort of a year away. I thought it'd be just a couple months away. SIGH.
Well shit, maybe fall was the timeline of getting the equipment in to start testing. It was Laura telling me about it at the winter beer Fest.
Too pricey compared others of equal quality, although I haven't had all their offerings.
Compared to other four packs of 16oz cans the price seems to be right in line.
I am not one to purchase their standard line up, I will admit it is part price but more preference. That will probably change when Big Red Coq becomes year round. The rotating and season beers are well worth the price IMO.
Big Red Coq is the one I do buy for my golf bag, or SN Torpedo.
